    This is not meant to offend anyone but I keep seeing guys on here posting their cars for $5-10k over market and wondering why people aren't jumping on the deal. I purchased mine with a ton of add-ons a month ago with only 900 miles for $62,750. 2015 A8 full laguna leather and nav. I was offered a billet silver A8 with 3500 miles for $60k even. I could have picked up a 6 speed manual car for under $60k. Dealers now have 2016 used in the mid 60's, auto and nice color selection. Also most folks need to dispose of a vehicle so they have to trade in. Those that don't have to trade are in the best position and certainly aren't going to overpay for the kerfluffel package. A 2015 manual is a high $50's to $60k retail car and an A8 low $60's. A 2016 a couple of grand more at best-they are all over Autotrader at these prices. My car came from a guy that stared at it for a year and a half in the garage-then took a bath-drive them people, enjoy them! Have fun and realize that yes, they don't drop in value like an SXT, but they do drop...

    I think it's like anything people over pay for they want to try and recover their money. If you did overpay it was hopefully because you really wanted the car. If it was an investment than it was a bad one. I agree people should enjoy their cars and not save them for the next owner.

    With no Hellcats or Hemi engines in 2019, then these cars will become collectable. I intend to put miles on it
    saving it for no one but me. Selfish isn't it? HAHA

    Twin Turbo 4's and 6's then. I guess we will all buy ricers after that.

    There atta be a law.

    The Hellcat IS an investment. An investment in FUN FUN FUN. Six months of ownership, 7000 miles, and one billion smiles. Saving your car for the next owner is like not having sex with your girlfriend and saving her for the next guy.

    Is that girl old enough to drive? Don't give her any key. She looks 15.

    Current platform will be here until 2020. I dont think they'll drop the Hemi or the HC before that.

    These cars will not be collectible. By the end of the run, there will be tens of thousands of Hellcats out there. Maybe in 200 years!

    Yep, drive em and dont waste time vacuum sealing them and putting them up on blocks lol. They'd have to stop production now to make them worth anything later. Not only that but im sure they will keep coming out with later/greater things that will push these down the ladder anyway.
    Drive em.

    I'll be 66 in a few months.:D Add 30years to that for the values to stabilize and rise! :oops: The saying is ----- Use it before you LOSE IT! :eek: Otherwise one will constantly second guess themselves saving it for a rainy day and NEVER enjoying the fruits of one's labor! :(
